There is a recording out there, sometimes called Knockin' on Heaven's Door, which is reportedly the final recording session that Jerry had, with a similar feel to the Pizza Tapes.

Anyway, Jerry flubs the lyrics of House of the Rising Sun, and there's an amazing Knockin' recorded here.

I find the recording simply amazing, moving and so full of pathos that I can't listen often. It's truly as if even though he's enjoying himself, from this perspective, he knows what's coming.

Not to mention, the Stones' "You can't always get what you want." which needs to be discredited because of it's association with "The Big Chill." (credits go to Nick Hornby and the most awesome book/movie High Fidelity...

How 'bout We bid you goodnight, or the closing to the Beatles White album, a personal favorite, Good Night...

Now it's time to say good night
Good night Sleep tight
Now the sun turns out his light
Good night Sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Good night Sleep tight
Now the moon begins to shine
Good night Sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Good night Sleep tight
Now the sun turns out his light
Good night Sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.

Good night Good night Everybody
Everybody everywhere
Good night.
